Resumen del libro

Reseña: The full-time job is disappearing. Today more workers than ever are going freelance - driving for Uber or cycling for Deliveroo, developing software or consulting for investment banks. Welcome to the gig economy. In Gigged, Sarah Kessler meets the people forging this new world of unorthodox employment: from the computer programmer who chooses exactly which hours he works each week, via the Uber driver who is trying to convince his peers to unionise, to the charity worker who thinks freelance gigs might just transform the fortunes of a declining rural town. Their stories raise crucial questions about the future of work. What happens when job security, holidays and benefits become a thing of the past? How can freelancers find meaningful, well-paid employment? And could the gig economy really change the world of work for ever? Praise for Gigged 'Essential reading for anyone who is interested in understanding the future of our economy and society.' Ha-Joon Chang, author of 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism 'Sarah Kessler's wonderful book offers unprecedented illumination of the promise, and the peril, of the gig economy.' Martin Ford, author of The Rise of the Robots 'If you want to know how work is changing and how you too must change to keep up, you must read this book.' Dan Lyons, author of Disrupted 'Deep reporting and graceful storytelling . . . Kessler's analysis is both astute and nuanced.' Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive
